Last month in February, Tony Yayo, friend of 50 Cent, took to his Instagram account and announced he is “done with music” and said “50 ain’t rocking with me and Banks the same.”
50 Cent had this to say about Tony Yayo, when asked by Billboard:
“I had a wonderful journey with the people I grew up with. I think the frustration comes from shock, probably, that it’s not everything they wanted it to be,” he says of Yayo’s comments. “Him of all people… It’s not a secret, it’s a known fact that he actually came home form jail with a million dollars and a Bentley. Like, ‘What do you want?'”
“These guys are millionaires. They’ve made millions of dollars. Why do that then? Whenever there’s no one to blame, you know what game you play, [for] a look. I don’t know what the goal was,” he continues, also saying that he hasn’t communicated with G-Unit former and current members.
The ordeal “doesn’t affect my life,” 50 Cent says. “I don’t believe in looking back. I can care less about things that’s happened in the past. I’m looking forward, at prosperity.”
“I’ve learned: The same person that tells you you’re a piece of shit tells you they love you when the right song comes out. ‘My man, 50 back.’ So you can’t be affected by ‘I hate you’ because it won’t allow for something good to come in.”
